Byram Township police stumbled onto quite a mess with an allegedly drunk driver during a January 24 traffic stop. Though it began normally enough, after police pulled over Kristopher Fanelli on Waterloo Road, they began to suspect that the driver was intoxicated.
Fanelli agreed to participate in several field sobriety tests, which he failed, after which he was arrested.
As police investigated the scene, they discovered a vape pen containing THC liquid. When Fanelli was finally transported to the station, police say that he failed breath tests twice.
He’s been charged with DWI, possession of a controlled dangerous substance in a motor vehicle, possession of under 5 grams of hash, and careless driving.
